The past days, two testimonies of unlawful and violent push-backs were recorded by No Name Kitchen in Velika Kladuša, BiH. Sexual harassment was a part of the abuse these people, including women and children, suffered from while crossing the border. Both incidents happened only days after this report was published, which covered several cases of border violence recorded during July.
